QUALIA NOUS, itself a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award® for superior achievement in an anthology, did not come away from last night’s ceremony empty-handed. Usman Tanveer Malik’s “The Vaporization Enthalpy of a Peculiar Pakistani Family” and Rena Mason’s “Ruminations” both took home the award for Superior Achievement in Short Fiction.

In addition to my own story, “Cataldo’s Copy”, QUALIA NOUS also features the work of award-winners and bestsellers such as Gary Braunbeck, Elizabeth Massie, Thomas F. Monteleone, Lucy Snyder (who won two Stokers last night), John Everson, William F. Nolan, Gene O’Neill, and Stephen King, to name just a few. Edited by Michael Bailey, QUALIA NOUS is now available in paperback from Written Backwards.

Here are all of last night’s Stoker Award Winners:

Jack Ketchum and Tanith Lee both won Lifetime Achievement Awards from the Horror Writer’s Association. ChiZine won the Specialty Press Award. QUALIA NOUS’s Rena Mason won the Silver Hammer Award, presented for outstanding service to the HWA. The President’s Richard Laymon Service Award was presented to Tom Calen, Brock Cooper, and Doug Murano, and the first annual Mentor of the Year award went to Kathy Ptacek.

And remember, to celebrate the Bram Stoker Awards® and the World Horror Convention, pick up the anthology SHRIEKS AND SHIVERS for your Kindle for just 99¢, on sale all month long from Post Mortem Press.

Christian A. Larsen is the author of LOSING TOUCH, featuring a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Piers Anthony, now available in paperback and ebook formats from Post Mortem Press.
